MagSafe Monday: Two simple accessories that will dramatically improve your iPhone

MagSafe is one of those technologies similar to smart home products that allows you to expand the capabilities of your device. Sometimes the simplest products are the most effective. This week I'm reviewing two products that every iPhone owner should have: the CLCKR Phone Holder and the CLCKR Phone Holder; Grip and Anker 622 Magnetic Battery, 5000mAh Foldable Magnetic Wireless Portable Charger with Stand and USB-C.

MagSafe Monday: Every Monday, Bradley Chambers takes a look at the latest and greatest in MagSafe and the wireless charging industry to help you get the most out of Apple devices that support wireless charging.

Anker 622 battery with stand

There are hundreds of power bank options, but Anker is generally one of the safest brands. I have never purchased Anker products and regretted my purchase. Even with MagSafe batteries, you have different options to choose from. I think the Anker Magnetic Battery, 5000mAh Foldable Magnetic Wireless Portable Charger with Stand and USB-C is one of my favorites. It's thin enough (0.5 inches thick) to sit on your iPhone while it's in your pocket, charges via USB-C, and includes a slim stand that rests against the battery when not in use. If you have a portable workstation that you can't always leave a MagSafe stand permanently attached to somewhere, this makes a great portable option with a stand.

With a 5,000 mAh battery, you can charge your iPhone almost completely, starting with a fully drained MagSafe battery and a fully drained iPhone. I find this useful when traveling as I will have twice the daily battery life.

CLCKR Phone Holder. & Capture

You are mistaken if you think this is a modern pop outlet. When I ordered this product, I wasn't 100% sure what to expect, but I liked it. Plain and simple: This is the thinnest and easiest way to place your iPhone on a table or plain. Think of it as a Swiss Army Knife type product.

Phone holder CLCKR & The handle has a magnetic strength of 3500 Gauss, so it won't fall off unless you remove it. It's useful for three purposes: holding your iPhone while talking, using it as a portable desk stand, and using it as a stand for watching movies/TV shows.

It's thin enough that you can easily leave it on your iPhone forever if you don't need to use another MagSafe accessory, like a car mount. I don't always feel like charging my iPhone, so this is a good way to keep it upright for 2FA codes or use Face ID on your desk.

Phone holder CLCKR & Grip is also available in multiple colors, so you can easily use it to add some shine to your existing MagSafe-compatible iPhone case.

Summary

Overall, these are two solid accessories that I highly recommend. If you don't work from home, both options are ideal for everyday carry in your bag. Phone holder CLCKR & The Grip has some strong magnets that I have used in MagSafe accessories. It can be purchased from Amazon or directly from CLCKR. The Anker 622 Magnetic Battery, 5000mAh Foldable Magnetic Wireless Portable Charger with Stand and USB-C Connector can be purchased from Amazon or directly from Anker.
